Radamel Falcao out at least 2 more weeks with new injury

At this rate, he might never get fit.

Not only is Radamel Falcao struggling to get fully fit after recovering from an ACL tear last season, but he's picking up other injuries as well. Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says Falcao will miss two weeks with "a new injury", though he didn't specify what that injury was.

Along with teammates Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie, Falcao is one of the biggest earners in the Premier League. So far, he's earned millions to do almost nothing for the Red Devils. He's made just four appearances for United, scoring once.

The good news for United is that, despite their serious injury problems, most of them haven't been up front. Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata are all available to play Arsenal this weekend, so Falcao wouldn't have gotten a start anyway. But regardless, Ed Woodward can't be happy that he's paying Falcao north of a million pounds per month to sit on the sidelines.
